I would like to lower it, but I really dont want to spend the money or fee of installation, dunno enough about lowering kits price ranges or what I would need to get, and whether I could install it on my own or not.

You can do it yourself. Check the DIY section, there should be something there about installing lowering springs. I have eibach sportline springs, they will run you about $200-$230, check ebay.

are they trusting, do they make turning any more difficult? any flaws? and how long does it take to install them give or take? cuz I can afford 200-230 easy, dont really want to spend the money, but lowering it would make a big difference. what size do i need to look 4? I dont really understand the gap size differences.

Yes, Eibach is a very trusted brand. You will probably find many members on this forum with them. Lowering springs are designed to help with handling, they will not make steering harder. With the LS Cobalts Eibach Sportlines are rated to lower I believe 2.0" in the front and 2.5" in the back. Here they are on Ebay.

these are just a single LED mounted behind each wheel, then theres a led panel in the car that shows me everytihing the wheel LEDS are doing, its an awesome kit. the place I had install them charged me 150$ for the kit and 100$ for install, it ended up taking about 12 hours for them to fully install it, lol, so I got a good deal. Its also hooked up to the system to beat to the bass, as well as brightness settings and all the flash setting possible, lol.
